Another edition in the 87th Precinct series and this time we’ve got a murder taking place with several suspects but no clear evidence to support any of their cases. They all have alibis but one of them must have done it! There’s also the death of one of the squad members to deal with, with surprisingly little of the private lives of the officers in the story this time.
I’m still really enjoying these books though, they’re such short and simple reads, a quick dip into the grimy but ultimately worthy world of the 87th, as the cast of characters grows and changes and the cases are solved by hard work, a little bit of luck and plenty of detective skills.
